that happen in washington but, first, let's look at how the president made his victory happen. the president put together a decisive electoral college victory winning at least 303 votes to romney's 206 and at this hour in florida where the president leads by it looks like at this moment 50,000 votes, remains too close to call where we think the vote remains should favor the president. those folks in miami-dade are going to start counting votes when they get to work this morning. but those margin of victory was smaller than in 2008. in the end demographics and a strong turnout operation delivered the president a win in the popular vote, two points. democrats held on to control of the u.s. senate and though democrats had 23 seats to defend the caucus could still actually pick up members for the president's second term, get up to 54 seats perhaps. two senate races do remace too close to call. jon tester narrowly leads danny rehberg. also too close to call we have the house race in the 18th district where allen west is now trailing with 100% in. patrick murphy there. west may be knocked off afte
